ive been taking it for years. I originally started because of these feelings and it did away with them. I
You are taking less than the minimum starting dose which is 20 mg per day and can be increased to 60 mg.
My dr tried to change my to cymbalta and it made things 100 times worse. I feel like I need help now
Paxil can cause suicidal thinking and action, but you haven't even been taking enough to be effective, according to the recommended dosage.
Many people have very negative reactions to Cymbalta so that is not unusual.
Im afraid Im actually going to do something. I dont want to get any kind of record for committing myself
Talk to your doctor about increasing the dosage. I do not think that you are getting enough to have an effect.
It is not good on your record, but it sounds worse as a cause of death.
I urge you to see you doctor right away. Can you trust him or her?
It has always helped before. If I commit myself will my employer find out? My dr is not open on sunday.
He is a good guy. I think I can trust him
No. HIPAA laws protect your information.
It is illegal for them to obtain info.
Claim you had a bad flu. They won't want you around for a few days.
My head has been foggy. Everyone keeps ignoring when I say this
What do you think causes the fogginess? Do you have headaches as well?
Yes. Im not sure what causes it. It has been for months. I have never been this bad.
I have no reason for any of it
There are a number of causes for this foggy brain symptom:
I have a good job. generally no problems. A simple life Ive made for myself.
It could also be due to a brain tumor.
My dr just threw mood meds at me
You should have yourself checked out because this symptom is probably not due from the small amount of Paxil you are taking.
Are you taking anything else now or have other conditions?
No . No drug use or alchohol. It all came from no where
Started with no sleeping and morphed into this
Was going up to 4 days with no sleep
Now I cant get myself out of bed
If I commit myself does that prevent me from any rights such as gun ownership, driving?
Not driving, and not present gun ownership.
I have no criminal record .
As in if I own something now I can legally have it but not buy anything new?
Possible. It depends what you put on the forms you sign.
Your records are still private and protected.
